Hot Performing Stocks For 2019: Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V.(FCAU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Douglas A. McIntyre]

    Ford’s two U.S.-based rivals are expected to do particularly well, with General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) sales up 11.7% to 265,000. The industry will never get GM’s final number for the month, since it no longer gives out monthly sales figures. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (NYSE: FCAU), which has struggled recently, is forecast by Cox to post a sales increase of 11.9% to 216,000. It is very rare for Fiat Chrysler sales to be close to Ford, let alone to pass them.

  • [By Douglas A. McIntyre]

    Ford’s two major rivals are expected to do unusually well compared to the industry. General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) sales are expected to rise 4.9% to 255,000. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (NYSE: FCAU) sales are expected to jump 7.8% to 202,000. If the year to date has set any pattern, it is that Ford’s sales would be much worse if not for the sales of the F-Series full-sized pickup, the top-selling vehicle in the United States and about 35% of Ford’s total sales.The Jeep and Ram pickup divisions have bolstered Fiat Chrysler’s results. GM has enough sport utility vehicles and crossovers across its brands to hold its own.

Hot Performing Stocks For 2019: Digirad Corporation(DRAD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Some of these are even smaller nano-caps, such as medical device maker Digirad (Nasdaq: DRAD), whose entire market value is just $36 million.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with small businesses. I own shares of quite a few in my personal account. But for the most part, I use them to fill out the growth sleeve of my portfolio and don’t consider them stable income producers.

Citigroup’s Wendy Nicholson and Beth Kite argue that the once “untouchable” Avon Products (AVP) “has become intriguing.” They explain why:

After Avon was the worst performing stock in the HPC group in 2015 (down nearly 60%), Avon has been the best performing stock in our coverage universe year-to-date in 2016 (up ~65%). While we have no explanation specifically for the recent strength in the stock (and especially heavy trading volume), we think there are several factors that help explain why the stock has out-performed the market so handily so far this year, above and beyond the fact that the stock entered the year at an awfully depressed price. Specifically, Avon now seems to be more of an investable name than it had been previously, owing to (i) refinancing of debt has allayed bankruptcy concerns, (ii) investment by Cerberus has boosted confidence in managements execution-ability, (iii) the sale of the U.S. business has eliminated a previous drag to profits, (iv) the relative stabilization of U.S. dollar has tempered f/x headwinds, and (v) AVPs organic sales growth trends improved to ~+4% YoY in 1H16.

The walking and casual athletic-footwear specialist posted record net sales of $1.25 billion, but between decelerating revenue growth during the seasonally potent quarter, failing to blow past its guidance the way it did last time out, and offering up uninspiring guidance it just wasn’t enough for the stock to justify the multiyear high it hit earlier in the week.

After examining Walt Disney’s (DIS) earnings, which were released after yesterday’s market close, Stifel’s Benjamin Mogil and Kevin Lee Hon Siong argued that they “continue to view Disney as a Tale of Two Stories.” They explain why:

Getty Images

Disney reported 4Q16 results which were in-line with our estimates but below those of consensus expectations. Commentary for 2017 was likely below expectations but at the same set the stage for more realistic expectations and we view that clarity/transparency as one of the bigger factors behind the after-market hours stock reversal.

Continue To View Disney As A Tale Of Two Stories: Since the beginning of the year we noted that the company is somewhat of a split story. We continue to be of the view that the consumer-facing segments of the business: theme parks, studio and consumer products, continue to execute well/have a favorable outlook. Noted on this call was a strong start to Shanghai Disney, with the park expected to be around break even by the end of the year, much quicker than other international parks. While Studio will see a down year given the difficult “Star Wars” comp, the Studio continues to have a strong content cycle from not only Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar but increasingly from Disney Animation and Disney live action with the setup into 2018 very favorable. Similarly, the commentary on consumer products growth y/y was better than expected and shows greater depth into its product/licensing offering.

    2. Low Debt Levels
    By looking through his previous success stories like Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO), American Express (NYSE: AXP), and Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC), it is clear that Buffett carefully examines a company’s balance sheet, and prefers to invest in those with relatively modest debt burdens.

    Well-known stocks in that group include JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM), Wells Fargo & Co (NYSE: WFC) and Bank of America Corp. (NYSE: BAC).

    Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) did an exceptionally good job of making it through the financial crisis in 2008 with minimal damage, weathering the turbulence in its stock price and rising to all-time record highs in the early and mid-2010s. Along the way, Wells Fargo also sought to regain its standing as a strong dividend stock, and it has successfully restored its quarterly payout to levels above what it had paid prior to the crisis. Yet recently, the bank has run into controversy with a scandal involving employees opening fake accounts, and Wells Fargo’s most recent earnings weren’t as strong as the company has seen in the past. Some investors are wondering whether the bank’s track record of dividend increases since the financial crisis could be in jeopardy. Let’s look more closely to whether Wells Fargo will raise its dividend in 2017.

In what would be a blow to American aerospace giant Boeing, Delta Air Lines is set to order around 100 jetliners from European rival Airbus, according to two people familiar with the deal.

Atlanta-based Delta will announce a deal later Wednesday for the Airbus A321neo, the sources said. The agreement with Airbus maker will be accompanied by a planned purchase of Pratt & Whitney engines, they added.

Spokespeople for Delta (DAL)and Airbus declined to comment. Boeing (BA) said it had no comment. Delta’s board of directors is expected to meet Wednesday to vote on the Airbus purchase, the sources said.

Delta had been talking to Boeing about buying around 100 of its 737 Max 10 airliners, a person familiar with the matter said.

The move comes a day after Canada announced plans to ditch a deal with Boeing for new F/A-18 Super Hornets in favor of used fighters from Australia.

Boeing and Delta are embroiled in an ongoing trade dispute over the airline’s purchase of the smaller Canadian Bombardier C Series. Boeing has accused Bombardier of selling the C Series to Delta at unfairly low prices, and the U.S. Commerce Department has recommended a preliminary 300% tariff on the import of the jets. Bombardier and the Canadian government deny any unfair trade practices.
